  3. MRS WARREN'S PROFESSION


Mrs Warren’s Profession is a provocative play written by the renowned Irish playwright George Bernard Shaw. Premiered in 1893 but banned for its controversial subject matter, the play explores societal norms and challenges the prevailing moral attitudes of its time. The play delves into the complex relationship between a mother, Mrs. Kitty Warren, and her daughter, Vivie, as they grapple with issues of morality, social expectations, and the economic constraints faced by women in the Victorian era. Shaw’s sharp, witty observations and biting, social commentary make Mrs Warren’s Profession a thought-provoking classic that is decades ahead of its time.

SHAW2020, winners of a London Pub Theatres ‘Standing Ovation’ award in 2021 and ‘Best Show’ at the Birmingham Fringe Festival in 2022 for their production of Shaw’s Village Wooing, have updated the timeline of Mrs Warren’s Profession, delivering a fresh perspective to Shaw’s classic work by bringing the action forward slightly to the 1930s. An era where women continued to struggle against a patriarchal, capitalist society, offset by a sense of twentieth-century empowerment on the horizon.
